I think I see the problem WRT refinement white-space handling.
The XMLWhiteSpaceHandler uses as a basis the white-space related
properties that govern the white-space handling of the surrounding
block. In case of an fo:title, there is no surrounding block, so ...
To make it even more fun, the properties in question do not apply
to an fo:title. :-)
Now, by the time white-space handling is performed, if I judge
correctly, the Title's PropertyList will no longer be available, so
we can't even retrieve possible inherited values anymore.
Should we make Title a big exception here, and have it bind these
properties to instance variables anyway (just like a Block does)?
Alternative solution: alter the XMLWhiteSpaceHandler, and the
location where it is initialized with the related properties. If this
latter step is moved to FObjMixed.bind(), we could pass it a
reference to the PropertyList. So, even inherited values could be
retrieved in case of an fo:title...
